Just short of perfect

Under scrutiny: Jennifer Lawrence, perhaps best known as Ree Dolly in Winter’s Bone, for which she got an Academy Award nomination, at this week’s People’s Choice Awards. At least part of the reason you’re seeing this here is that I’m enthralled by this little cobalt-blue number conjured up by Viktor & Rolf:

I even like the shoes — Sergio Rossi — except for one minor detail:

I mean, these are about a size and a half too big for her.

    Maybe they don’t make them any smaller?

    I once speculated that the couture houses made these things in extremely limited sizes and numbers, and you pretty much had to take what you got, especially if you weren’t actually buying but just borrowing them for the evening.

    The fit of the shoes do throw the whole thing off. Interesting dress, though I’m not sure I like it a lot. Maybe with a different color under the cut-outs. She deserved the nomination for Winter’s Bone. Winter’s Bone deserved a few more awards than it actually received…

    The dress, you may be sure, is consistent with the thinking of V&R, who once gave us a fragrance called “Flowerbomb.”
